31 Days of Halloween - Day 23

Caw, Caw, CAW!!!  There is so much excitement here this morning!!!  SCACD is sponsoring the 31 Days of Halloween again!!! CAW, CAW!!!   You can win prizes and all the details can be found right HERE.  Loving it!

I decided that fancy dress was appropriate for the occasion.  Vincent can do nothing but gawk at the image of the bird.  We have had a couple of discussions about the type of bird and that no, it is not the best kind, but it certainly is an acceptable kind.  Really Vincent?  Questioning me?  CAW!
 This lovely bird is one of the SCACD Digital images.  There are a bunch of wonderful images in the Digital section.  This one is called Gothie Owl.  For those of you that love owls, there is an entire section of Digital Images devoted to owls!  (I am certain that the one devoted to ravens will be along shortly and was just an oversight)  The background paper is great for this guy and the die cut is a fun addition.  Alex got both at SCACD.  I am not certain how much of the Halloween/Fall themed items are left, but rumor has it there are some killer (caw, caw, get it?) sales going on at the moment.

Now, run along to see the other amazing 31 Days of Halloween creations from the Wicked Bloggers found on the sidebar and don't forget you can WIN a fabulous prize from SCACD!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 22

Well hello!!!  Aren't you all bright eyed and bushy tailed?  You and Vincent both I see.  This should be great fun. Especially since today we have a guest artist.
Yes, a guest.  I know, you see a puzzle piece and think 'how can that be?' but it is.  Alex's son B is guesting today with a puzzle piece he has created.  Yes this one is part of the same puzzle.  Isn't that sweet?  (hack, hack, hack..sorry- something in my throat called sweetness making me gag)

On to the piece.  This is a stamp that has an image of a skull.  Yes, you are correct.  Not just any ol' skull but a vampire skull.  I know right?  B has some great taste when it comes to images.  He then colored it up with Distress Inks using both sponges and a water brush.  Personally, I think he should be a guest artist more often.  We might see less glitter and more spooky.

Ok- head along to the other Wicked Bloggers as listed on the sidebar.  Nothing more to see here- really GO!

Happy Halloween

31 Days of Halloween - Day 21

Hello and welcome, welcome.  Vincent is nagging to provide commentary, but don't worry, I have told him that he has more work to do first.

Alex has something just amazing to share with you.  She has an image from AuroraWings by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  She has some stunning ladies, but this one is just .... well, everything a siren should be, including her recent acquisition.

There is plenty of sparkle on this image as well.  I hope you can see it.  I know that I did have to stay back a bit when the glitter was flying, but it was certainly worth it.  You can find the AuroraWings images here.

On to other darkness and Halloween fun that the rest of the Wicked Bloggers have for you.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 20

DAY 20!?!?!?  WHAT!?!?!?  Oh my, this month is going waaaaaaaaaaaay too fast!!!  (no cage, no cage, please, please no cage)

Since today is Monday, that means that dummy head dear Vincent is back with us.  He is bright eyed and ready to go, which is good... right?

pfft, pfft, pfft... VINCENT, back up, no more fuzz in my beak.  DUDE~!
Now, I saved this puzzle piece specifically to show Vincent.  We are discussing, not only the art work from Alex, but birds.  The best birds, the gorgeous birds, the only type of birds that matter.  Why yes, you do know what I mean and no they are not harebrained balls of flying fluff!  Oh, and I have been instructed to tell you that the fun streaky background was on purpose.  However, Alex was having some difficulty with the water brush and distribution and... well, she couldn't recreate this if she tried.  BUT you did not hear that from me.

All the Wicked Bloggers are looking forward to your visit this morning.  Their links are on the sidebar.  OH, and can you pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaase take Vincent with you?  For his education of course.

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 19

Hello Sunday!!  oh- an you to of course!  Thank you for visiting us today.  The last day of the weekend today and then back to it tomorrow.  I know, I know, Alex doesn't give me a day off so it shouldn't matter.  However, Vincent is back so really, the weekend IS more relaxing for me. 

Oh yes, we are back to the puzzle pieces.  Caw, caw, caw, caw.....  However, good news/bad news.  I got Alex to COUNT up the puzzle pieces remaining.  There are not enough days left for her to finish them all and put it together to share (caw, caw).  So, there has been some debate as to if it should continue into November and have a 'days after Halloween' or to do next year or double up pieces (that is assuming she can work that hard diligently creatively)  What do you all think should happen?  Oh, and there are some more non puzzle items to share as well.  In the meantime...

Alex loves the way this one came out.  The glow and how it is both the house and the sky that are glowing.  She was super happy when her vision for the lights in the windows actually working in real life, not just in her head.  That head of hers comes up with some crazy stuff that doesn't always materialize.  Makes for an interesting conversation.  Of course those conversations are all only between Alex and Alex, but still interesting especially since so many of them are out loud.  CAW!

I do hope you are all still with us and surviving enjoying the month.  There are some crazy amazing creations from some of those Wicked Bloggers.  Did you see the ship?  How about those calendar pages?  All the different altered items?  Some of that coloring and card making and.... WOWZERS!  I got a brief peek and am beyond speechless.  I know, you are shocked, but really amazing stuff.  - although you needn't worry, I recovered quickly!  Check everyone one out using the links on the side bar!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 18

Good morning!  Alex is frantic again in the background and so this may be short and sweet.  Sorry.

However, this is an amazing creation today.  This fairy is dancing in the light of the harvest moon.  What a wonderful Halloween activity.

This lovely lady is the fairy Bliss.  She is available from SCACD in red rubber.  The shimmering moths are cut from the Dies by SCACD Uncaged Bird.  Those lovely light bulbs are a red rubber image Party Lights

Check out all the Wicked Bloggers for what they have created.  The links to all their blogs can be found on the right sidebar.

-oh, if you hadn't noticed... apparently Vincent gets weekends off.  CAW!!!

Happy Halloween!

31 Days of Halloween - Day 17

You are NOT going to believe this.  Alex has asked me to take someone under my wing and teach them about how 'we' do this 31 Days of Halloween thing.  Personally, I think Alex is looking to go out with the old in with the new.  Let me know what you think.  Ok, well, here we go.....

Hello all and welcome, welcome!!!  Today I am very ticked, disgusted, honored to introduce you too my new underling, torture victim, friend Vincent!   -DUDE!!!, Back up!

As you can see, Vincent is just a young chick.  His brain is not fully developed yet and so this could be quite an.....experience for all of us.

It only seemed appropriate to begin teaching Vincent with the altered puzzle pieces -since they are never ending.....- and so that is what we have to share with you today, again.

This one is an edge piece (I know you know that, but Vincent, not so sure -reference first picture if you are wondering why).  For this piece Alex used the inside of the skull image.  The other pieces/parts.  She also covered the specimen jar with glossy accents so that it has a glass appearance.  Unfortunately, that is just not something that the blog photographer has the skills to capture. (I will leave it at that, but you all know who I am talking about)

Go see what items the other Wicked Bloggers taking part in 31 Days of Halloween have for you today (I am betting it isn't the 40 billionth puzzle piece) and enjoy hopping around.  Please leave them some love for their hard work and don't forget to enter to win the daily prizes!!! (links to blogs all are on the sidebar, still)

Happy Halloween!
